Congratulations to Unioto running back/wide receiver Connor Dollison for being voted SBLive’s Ohio High School Athlete of the Week for Sep. 6-12!
The sophomore led his team to its first win of the season. After Unioto’s game-tying field-goal attempt was blocked, Dollison picked up the ball and snuck into the end zone to give Unioto a 33-30 edge over Huntington.
Dollison ran away with this week’s honor, receiving 96.1% of the total vote.
